It's nearly official: MLS coming to St. Paul
Major League Soccer is coming to St. Paul.
The city’s monthslong courtship of the MLS and Minnesota United, which was awarded an MLS expansion franchise last spring, is about to be rewarded, according to an e-mail sent Thursday by St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce President Matt Kramer to board members.
In it, Kramer wrote that Mayor Chris Coleman and United team officials plan to announce at 1 p.m. Friday that the MLS has signed off on putting a new franchise in St. Paul and that a soccer stadium will be built at University and Snelling avenues in the city’s Midway neighborhood. The announcement is expected to be made at the Midpointe Event Center, near the future stadium site.
